Rising Up - In the Middle of Things
By: Marvin Roxas
It is the second half of week 5 of the 8-week Rising Up project with BLSYW (Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women). Every Tuesday and Thursday morning, WombWork Productions, Inc. instructors spend two hours working with two classes of 6th grade girls to prepare them to create, share, and eventually present their stories in the form of a script onstage at The Modell Lyric. Thus far WombWork Productions, Inc. instructors, dancers, drummers, and singers have facilitated classes that introduce students to theatrical skills, virtues engagement, and storytelling. This week marks a pivotal stage in the program, because now a script based off of the students' work must be created, incorporated, and brought together before being presented at The Modell Lyric.
